Do grandparents have child visitation rights in Illinois?

We've written several blog posts about child custody matters and the impact on both children and parents. In many families, child custody and visitation matters impact not only parents, but also grandparents who, as a result of a child’s divorce or split, may experience a change in access to a grandchild.

Are child custody agreements set in stone?

When two parents split-up or divorce, matters related to child custody must be determined. Even in cases where a split or divorce is amicable, parents would be wise to take steps to establish a formal and court-enforceable child custody agreement. Doing so helps protect the custody rights of each parent in the event one's relationship with an ex changes or one parent moves to another city or state.

How socio-economic factors influence how kids adjust to divorce

When a child's parents divorce, he or she is likely to be impacted by many changes. For children from wealthier families, these changes are likely more significant in number and impact thereby leading to negative behavioral changes. This is one theory that researchers cite in helping explain findings from a recent study about how children are impacted by divorce.
